Jobs - Backend Engineer

Who we are

Our mission is to enable healthy environments for families everywhere. We are starting with air quality, which is linked to 7 million premature deaths in the world annually. We build revolutionary smart hardware for consumers to both monitor and purify their air, so that it’s free from pollutants, allergens, and other harmful components.

Our products are designed by the co-founder of IDEO, and are elegant on the outside while housing innovative airflow and sensor technology. We launched Air Bubbles, an iOS app displaying one of the largest collection of public air quality data globally. This platform will serve to aggregate our own data once we launch and eventually become the Waze of Air Quality.
